GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: So, you remember this guy Lech, the guy with the mustache, who actually earned his Nobel Prize? The former Polish president just endorsed Mitt for president.
That's got to hurt Obama. I mean, what can you say when a man who helped defeat communism endorses your opponent? What can you say when a man who brought economic freedom to a thankful people says, "No, not you, pal -- him"?
Well, if you're the media, what do you do? You've got to focus on the gaffes. Meanwhile, if you're the Palestinian Authority, you call Mitt a racist. And if you're Ahmadinejad, you agree with Nancy Pelosi that Mitt meeting the Jews was all about the cash.
To sum it up, Lech thinks Mitt is it. And Palestinian Authority and Ahmadinejad don't.
Now, if you are a liberal, this split should make you question which side you should be on. I mean, when someone like Lech endorses you for president, that's like Jeff Gordon saying you are a great driver. It's like Eric Bolling complimenting your tan. It's like Dana Perino calling you perky.
If the Eastern European father of free market believes in Mitt, that's big. And you've got to wonder which world leader will endorse Obama now. Oh, yes, the pinko pineapple, Hugo Chavez. He says Obama is a good guy. Maybe he could speak at the convention.
So, Bob --
DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Can I interrupt? Are you on a first name basis with world leaders and not race drivers? I mean, Lech is not really how he's known. What's the problem?
GUTFELD: I cannot pronounce his last name. It's Vawensa, but it's also Walesnka, it could be Rulalenska. I don't know how to say his name because they use a letter that is not in our alphabet. It's like a combination of a W and a V.
BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Have you ever been to Polish neighborhood in America? It's same problem.
GUTFELD: Is it? I haven't been in polish neighborhood.
BECKEL: You haven't?
GUTFELD: But I love sausage, I must ay. Some say I love it too much.
Cokie Roberts talking about Romney's trip to Poland says that it was all about courting the white Polish voters. Do you buy that?
BECKEL: Sure. What is the great mystery here? You make plans going places. Why did he go to Poland? Because Walesa was going to endorse him. That was a good thing.
But also because there are large enclave of Polish ethnic voters in the Northeast, particularly, that have been broken off from the Democratic Party. So, it's a nice way to send a message.
I don't think anything is wrong with that. I mean, I think Obama went to Germany probably because he -- to give a big speech and because --
GUTFELD: There's a lot of white Germans.
PERINO: I think there's a different strategy. And if you have a chance I encourage everybody to actually read the whole speech. It's really good. There was a theme here. One, there's obviously the Olympics. That makes sense since he was involved in the Olympics here.
But if you read the speech, he talks about the kinship between America and England, America and Israel, America and Poland. For example, Poland was one of the first countries to help America in the fight in Afghanistan and Iraq, and one of the first people to call President Bush, was the Polish leader. They have been solid across the board.
So, I actually think that there was more of a theme about freedom and democracy than there was about Polish voters which probably going to vote for him anyway.
ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: I think he's planning on winning. And if Mitt Romney wins, what a great thing to have on your resume, that I shook hands with the Israelis, I shook hands with the Pols, and I shook hands with the Brits.
Something that President Obama never did. He went there and made a speech and apologized for America. Instead Mitt Romney is going over there --
BECKEL: He didn't apologize for America. What are you talking about?
BOLLING: An apology tour. He said, we apologize for American exceptionalism --
BECKEL: He did not. That's just flat wrong.
BOLLING: Defended you in the past.
BECKEL: Where did you dream that up? Were you in the Polish
BOLLING: Take a look, Bob. Just listen to the speech. I made it
up, I'm just off the top of my head.
BECKEL: Yes, I think you did.
GUTFELD: OK. But here's the thing. Andrea, there's got to be a problem when, OK, if Lech likes Mitt and Hugo likes Obama, that's kind of telling. That should tell America -- what side are you on?
ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: It's very telling. Lech ran the solidarity movement.
BECKEL: That's not simplistic.
TANTAROS: And embarrassed the communist. So, it is a very telling endorsement.
